With summer now in full swing, and many members taking much deserved vacations, the HBACA traditionally scales back on programming. As we do, the association would like to say, “Thank You” to all members for engaging with the HBACA, and participating in the many events and programs taking place throughout the year.  It is your active involvement that makes our HBA one of the most dynamic in the country.

A few of the events this year attracting impressive numbers of members include:

Major Achievements in Merchandising Excellence (MAME) which saw an increase in attendance of nearly 20%. Drawing a crowd of 530 this year to the beautiful Chateau Luxe in Phoenix, the association’s black-tie affair was the biggest since the relaunch in 2014.  

Turn the Tables:  With 22 builders and a total of 370 participants, this annual event continues to be one of the most popular.  Taking place in May, Turn the Tables provides Builder and Associate members with the opportunity to connect in a casual, fast-paced environment making this one of the top events for business development.  

The association has more coming up in the fall, including:  

The Southwest Builders Show (SWBS):  Taking place on October 25th, the SWBS is the HBACA’s premier business development event drawing an anticipated 1,000+ attendees.  The industry-exclusive expo delivers a full day of networking, education and fun making this a member favorite.  The show features the Purchasing Agents, Suppliers & Subcontractors (P.A.S.S.) Breakfast, annual Forecast Luncheon, seminars and an exhibit hall dedicated to residential construction.

Sticks & Bricks Golf Tournament:  At the request of members the 2017 tournament is moving to a new location which will allow all players to participate simultaneously in a MORNING tournament.  Limited in size only by foursome availability, this event consistently sells out.  Sticks & Bricks 2017 takes place on Thursday, November 16th at the Whirlwind Golf Club at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler.  In addition to two 18-hole courses, Whirlwind also brings to the tournament some new features which will increase sponsor visibility. 

Also of note is the new Win 52 Raffle:  With members contributing 52 amazing prizes, this year-long fundraiser for Home Builders Care, the 501(c)3 charity sponsored by the HBACA, has already raised nearly $40,000.  The goal is $100K so we still have some distance to go, but the HBACA is grateful to all participants. 

Thank you to each and every member participating in events or programs in 2017.  Whether it be one mentioned above, or others like Meet the Builder, general membership programs, various roundtables or seminars, the success of the association’s business development and educational programming is directly linked to member engagement.  We sincerely appreciate your commitment to the HBACA.

Have a fun, safe summer!
